Hope… Sometimes that’s all you have when you have nothing else. If you have it, you have everything.

Does this sound like a strange thing to say?

Maybe to you it does, but to me they are words full of truth. Why? Because of the following words from scripture

Psalm 31:24

Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the LORD.

In other words, if we continue to believe in God, and have hope for the future, God will give us the strength we need to face all that life throws our way.

Continue to have hope for the future, because hope will provide for you in the future.

Only Hope by Caedmon‘s Call

Depth of mercy can there be
Mercy still reserved for me
Can my God, your wrath forbear
Me the chief of sinners, spare

It’s my only hope
You’re my only hope
It’s my only hope of Heaven
At the cross forgiven

I have long withstood your grace
Long provoked you to your face
Would not harken to your calls
Grieved you by a thousand falls

There for me the Savior stands
Shows his wounds and spreads His hands
Face to face before the Son
And like Isaiah I’m undone

Depth of mercy, vast and free
So much deeper than the sea
God of love, you heard my cry
Now into your open arms I fly
